Crowdsourcing the Exam Question Paper

The answer sheets have arrived. It’s evaluation time. In my 18 years of teaching, I tried a new technique for the first time. I crowdsourced the question paper. Yes, that’s right. I asked each team who worked on a case study to fix the questions and share it with the rest of the class. I picked the final questions from the rich repertoire. This experiment at BIM Trichy for my Digital and Social Media Marketing class has been super successful.

How NEET Exams can be Cracked for a Few Lakhs

Today, SunTV called on me to discuss the cheating that happened on NEET exams. Here is the story that appeared in The Hindu Newspaper today.

A very simple technique to cheat. Install a remote desktop management software and have someone else answer the questions on your behalf while you just simply sit in the test center physically.

I was also shocked to learn so many levels of delegation. The National Board of Exams (NBE) has appointed Prometric Testing to conduct the NEET exams. Prometric inturn has outsourced it to CMS which inturn has outsourced it to multiple vendors to conduct the exams. This is super ripe for corruption and cheating.

I really feel sad for all those honest students who genuinely worked hard for the exams.
